As one of only four surviving Fletcher-class destroyers (the most versatile triple threat ever to sail) and as the only destroyer world-wide restored to her WWII configuration, the USS KIDD continues her service as a museum and a tribute to America’s enduring legacy for future generations.
Your financial support motivates the dedicated crew of the USS KIDD in their quest to preserve and restore an American icon and operate it as a community platform for public education, civic engagement, and veteran outreach. The USS KIDD Veterans Museum is proud to have an active membership program that provides a range of benefits including unlimited admission, special invites, e-newsletters, and much more! Not only do you receive member benefits, you are an instrumental part of preserving history.
There is no definitive date on when the ship will leave for drydock.
